[PATCH] Pick correct format for Configure.pl --floatval='long double'

The attached patch picks the correct format for the case where Configure.pl was called with --floatval='long double'. It should usually be %.15Lg, but Perl 5's Configure also checks for a variety of other possibilities, so just use that result.

Replying to Andy D's email:

Thanks for applying that. I have one additional fix-up right away. It turns out that this will cause a failure in one of the post-configure tests. The problem is that the test is hard-coded to look for the wrong answer. I propose just deleting the test. (Alternatively, one could copy and paste the code to look for the correct answer from the config step, but I don't know what that would actually end up testing, other than one's ability to copy and paste correctly.)

Yep, some folks in the IRC channel noticed that (mikehh++) and so I checked in a fixed test in r36502. The test now verifies that I do have the ability to copy and paste correctly. :) (I'll remove that test if I remember to, hopefully I won't forget.)

[I've replied to the parrot-tickets list, but I don't know if that actually works. (I guess I'll find out.)]

Nope, that doesn't quite work yet. It's being worked on; ticket #49 tracks that.
